Little Letters

Little Letters is the illustrated story of a scientist and her two children who discover a new type of animal, called a Rinkidink, whilst going out for a walk. They take a tuft of its fur to the lab to test its DNA and find out more about it. Using rhyming language, the book explains DNA, genetics and the role of nature and nurture in making each person unique.

The book is the third children’s story written by Dr Tiffany Taylor, Evolutionary Biologist and Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Research Fellow at the Milner Centre for Evolution.

The new book is available for free online and printed copies of the book are available to buy on Amazon.
